One new restaurant has opened in Mooresville and a second announced plans to open next month.
Cantina 1511 has opened a new location at 120 Marketplace Ave., Suite D near Morrison Plantation in Mooresville.
And Sabor Latin Street Grill announced plans to open in August at 279 Williamson Road, Suite 6, at the corner of Williamson and Brawley School roads.
This will be the third Cantina 1511 location. The others are in the Park Road Shopping Center and Stonecrest.
This Mooresville location is the first of the new format which will be built in a smaller floorspace than the existing locations but with a full bar and patio.
“Our new Mooresville location offers a cozier setting where friends and families can reconnect, try creative, fresh, made-from-scratch menu items, and enjoy each other’s company,” said Dick Campbell, president and CEO of Quantum Development, owner of Cantina 1511. “It’s the first time Cantina has ventured north of the city and introduced its smaller footprint concept. People are saying it’s fast becoming the ideal neighborhood spot to spice up your week or weekend.”
Like the other Cantina 1511 locations, the new Mooresville location has open-air patio dining. It has a large bar with several large screen televisions. The dining room can accommodate large parties. The Mooresville 1511 also accepts reservations up to one month in advance. Larger parties can reserve space for their special event through Cantina 1511’s catering and private dining coordinator.
Hours at the new Mooresville location are Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m.to 10 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11p.m. Learn more and see all menus at Cantina15eleven.com.
Sabor Latin Street Grill will feature 2,530 square feet and 60 seats and its authentic menu draws on favorites from El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Mexico and Colombia.
The growth of the Sabor concept mirrors the growth of Charlotte, said Dalton Espaillat, CEO of Raydal Hospitality, the ownership group behind Sabor Latin Street Grill and Three Amigos Mexican Grill & Cantina. The Mooresville location will be the 13th Sabor location to open with a 14 th scheduled to open this fall in the University area of Charlotte. “We are responding to the numerous customer requests and trying to make it convenient for our fans,” Espaillat said. “We would like to fill in the empty spots on the market such as Concord and Bel m ont, Matthews to have every corner of the market covered.”
